More Super Nintendo Classics Land On 3DS eShop

Nintendo eShop Update Adds Even More Super Nintendo Games to Virtual Console, New 3DS Required

Earthbound Super Nintendo

This week’s update to the Nintendo eShop has added a third batch of Super Nintendo games to the New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console selection. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country 2, and Super Metroid are now available for purchase at $8 each. As previously mentioned, these Virtual Console games are exclusive to the New Nintendo 3DS line of handhelds; they are incompatible with both older 3DS models, as well as the 2DS.

These three SNES titles are the last on the list of confirmed New 3DS Virtual Console games, which was originally released last month in March. While the inclusion of even more SNES titles is indeed a possibility, nothing further has been confirmed. For those unsure on what SNES games are available for the New 3DS Virtual Console, please check out the list below.

– Donkey Kong Country
– Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong’s Quest
– Earthbound
– F-Zero
– Pilotwings
– Super Mario Kart
– Super Mario World
– Super Metroid
– The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
